A nice relaxing Sunday morning ......

Hi there,

Welcome to a lazy Sunday morning! Also welcoming my new follower, Squirrel, glad you found me and hope you'll be popping back from time to time!

Right, having teased you about my "grumpie" session I'm pleased to say that my card arrived at it's destination so this is no longer a "spoiler" post .....

Materials used:
  • 5" square white care and envelope
  • Smeared ink "grumpie" image and sentiment inked in memento tuxedo black, on to white card and cut out
  • Copics and Pro Markers to colour said grumpie
  • Navy ribbed card die cut in to a scalloped rectangle
  • Organza ribbon
  • Double sided sheet adhesive cut in to a rectangle slightly larger than my grumpie panel and then Jones Tones blue glitter applied - liberally!!!
  • Silver glitter panel run through my die cut machine inside an embossing folder
  • Blue gems to finish

Hope you like it, my pal assures me she did!!!

And now to a FOURTH entry for this week's challenge over on Simply Less Is More!! This challenge just goes from strength to strength - with over 80 entries already! WOWSER - this seemed like such a simple idea and yet - I KEEP thinking of other things to do with this . . . . thought I'd try a different corner this time!

Materials used:
  • 6" scalloped square white card and envelope
  • Cats Pyjamas image and the word HAPPY inked in memento tuxedo black, directly on to my base card
  • The word RETIREMENT (by Hampton Art - I THINK) inked in memento tuxedo black also directly on to my base card.
  • S.U. marker pen to draw freehand border around my chosen square
  • Diamond glaze on the balloon, hat and "trumpet"
  • Three silver "pearls" to finish

I THINK I'm done for this week . . . but then again, I DO have bottom right left to use if I fancy another go!

Have a great Sunday - my hubby is still debating whether or not to go flying - it's dull, it's grey and it's windy ...... but I BET he will!

I still can't get my head around the LiM, they take me longer than my detailed embellished ones. I love the simplicity you achieve with these Kathy.
Hope your Sunday is good.

joanne wardle said...

both fab! this challenge has taken over my life, but rather than something for each corner I've just become obsessed with how many ways I can use that top right corner!

Rocking the CAS style once more PP! I love the "It's a Wrap" sentiment, how cool?
Hope you've had a great weekend.
